That sucks. Do you have any pics of that dress IRL? It looks nice on the model, I can’t see how it managed to be so different.

@jbbs1222:  wow. Why did she do that? Was the other dress a lot cheaper?

@jbbs1222:  I like you in the dress you’re in.

Not a fan of the longer one – it looks very dated to me.

@jbbs1222:  While that stinks that she said one thing and did another I agree that  I like the second dress better too but she should have picked one based on what every looked like.  That first one sort of looks like crushed velvet carpet is running through the black or something and its strapless.  

I had my girls get convertable dresses which they all looked great in and I specifically told them not to do strapless.  One of the bridesmaids kept sending me strapless pics of dresses even after I said that and the day off the wedding she still managed to find a style that highlighted her breasts but my teenaged bridesmaids stepped in and corrected her and told me about it afterward thank god for them.

I had settled myself by saying if she does something were she’s hanging all out in my grandmother’s church then she will just look like a fool but in the end all my girls came through and looked elegant and amazing.  And I had the girls pay about 80 or so dollars for their dresses which were made to their measurements beforehand so no alterations. 🙂

I’m sorry that that bride had no consideration for your body types or pocket book, if she had talked to you before hand at least about pricepoint, and style, it would have been better. Ultimately if she wanted a dress with a short length and a v-neck top for 140 you could have talked to her about at least the top and how you needed more coverage.  Either way that stinks.
